Created by the Olmsted Brothers Landscape firm, the Dunn Gardens are one of little known about treasures of Seattle. Cultivated now for over 100 years, these graceful gardens are every horticulturist's dream. The flowers are incredibly vivid and pretty, and most of the tour feels like a fairy woodland walk. It is not freely open to the public. All visits happen by guided tour, but that's a good thing, as the docent is highly knowledgeable creates an engaging atmosphere.

Dunn Gardens Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful and quiet grounds with so many kinds of plants and flowers. Loved the sitting room with the big skylights. A little tough to find from the main street since there isn't much signage. Nestled into a residential neighborhood so at times I wasn't sure if where the garden ended and someone's backyard began but still lovely nonetheless
Beautiful layout and gardens but definitely confusing to stumble upon. If you head there head into one of the back paths instead of walking along the gravel road.
Beautiful place, interesting history, nice facility for a small memorial gathering.
Beautiful. It is a hidden gem
